Our unique circulation strategy pays off for our Advertisers

apb_chiefs_adWe are the only publication that is delivered to the leaders of every town, city, county and state law enforcement agency in the country – over 23,000 of them. That means your message is delivered to every agency in the nation.

19,000 copies of our 50,000+ press run are distributed to a rotating list of law enforcement supply stores, training academies and roll call rooms of large agencies, where they create a significant audience of new readers every month. This list, which was developed exclusively by American Police Beat, is available at no charge to our program advertisers.

Assuming 4 readers per copy, that’s an additional audience of 76,000 NEW readers every month, or 912,000 each year. This is just one more reason to make sure you advertise in American Police Beat every month.

We conservatively guestimate that 220,000 people read each issue. There is a huge pass-along factor with American Police Beat. The chief or sheriff often leaves it out in the roll call room for his officers to check out after he’s done reading it. We even heard one story where 19 cops chipped in for the $12 subscription and passed the magazine around for weeks after it arrived. Crazy, but true!

APB hits the sweet spot of circulation strategies – we deliver your message consistently to the most important law enforcement leaders while simultaneously providing fresh new readership for your ad with every single issue. Combined with our popular new web site and social media programs, you won’t find a better way to get the word out than with a message in the pages of American Police Beat.
